Introduction and Specifications

NZXT crowns Phantom as company's new flagship PC case


Today is the official launch date for NZXT's long-awaited Phantom full tower ATX case. The Phantom was previewed by several tech websites at this year's Computex and since then we have eagerly been anticipating its arrival. The Phantom is well priced at $139.99 and will come in black, red, and white colors. It includes many high-end cooling features like a built-in fan controller and 7 fan
cooling options with dual 200mm, single 230/200mm, triple 120mm, and front
140mm fans.

 

The Phantom can also supports micro ATX, ATX, and E-ATX form factor motherboards and five 5.25" devices and seven 3.5" hard drives. NZXT also added some nice cable management access points to hide cables behind the motherboard for a cleaner look and better airflow. The case is also built with a tool-less design making installing hardware a breeze.

 

Some other additions to the Phantom include an LED on/off switch for case lighting and longer rubber feet to secure the case on most surfaces. The top of the case also has two USB 2.0 ports, one eSATA port, and audio/mic jacks. The power button is also located on the top panel next to the USB ports.
